FAUNDEZ, Ximena  y  VINET, Eugenia V. Empirical Typology of Adolescent Drug Users According to the MACI. Psykhe [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.2, pp. 19-35. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22282009000200002.

An empirical typology of adolescent drug users, using the personality pattern scales from the Millón Adolescent Clinical Inventory (MACI), is presented. The MACI and a clinical interview were applied to 116 Chilean adolescent drug users, between 13 and 19 years of age, both male and female. The cluster analysis results suggested for the male sample a solution composed of 3 personality types, named Unruly-Forceful, Subclinical, and Oppositional-Self Demeaning. The final solution of the female sample was composed of 4 types, named Oppositional-Unruly, Inhibited-Self-Demeaning, Subclinical and at Risk. This typology was interpreted according to the 3 groups of MACI scales and clinical information, obtaining consistent results with the theoretical background.
